Bony hails team-mates after bagging brace
25th October 2014
Wilfried Bony hailed the contribution of his team-mates after his two goals helped the Swans rise to sixth in the Barclays Premier League following a 2-0 win over Leicester City.
Bony scored in either half to take his tally to four goals in his last three games, with Garry Monk's side picking up their first win in six league matches.
The opening goal came after Gylfi Sigurdsson raced onto Bony's intelligent backheel pass before squaring for the Ivorian to fire past Kasper Schmeichel in the 34th minute.
Then, in the second half, Sigurdsson's through ball found Jefferson Montero with the Ecuadorian winger teeing up Bony to guide home from eight yards.
And Bony was keen to point out the fine service his team-mates provided for him.
"Without the team I can't score," said Bony. "The way Siggy and Jeff gave me the ball, I had to score.
"Myself and Siggy have done that move a number of times in training so we are not surprised when each other plays a certain pass or run. It was a good move and it was very satisfying to finish it off.
"Siggy also played a great pass for Jeff, and his ball to me was very unselfish so I couldn't miss from there.
"If you're a striker and you score two goals for your team to win then you feel great, but I think my team-mates deserve the credit because they supply the service."
Bony added: "It was very important for us to win this game because we had lost a few in a row.
"We were at home and in front of our own fans so we really wanted to get three points today. This result gives the team more confidence for the next game."
